Instant Productivity Tools for Brokerage Firms

Growing Pains Really Hurt...

As the owner of your own brokerage firm, you have taken on much more of a business responsibility than what a group or team has to worry about. In addition to your sales and support staff and selling, a business requires significant infrastructure to operate. Legal, Human Resources, Information Technology, Finance are just a few of the critical departments that need a place within your organization.

Staffing, training, turnover, systems and procedures integration are all necessary for a smoothly running operation. On top of all those issues, is the need to sell real estate. Juggling this can be challenging for the best of business people. Your best moments are spent being face-to-face with your clients. You will never achieve a higher dollar-per-hour earnings than when you are speaking to a seller working to get a listing or helping a buyer decide which apartment to make an offer.

So why spend time on non-productive, non-revenue generating items...
